Gabadinho song takes new tunes: Wanderers in carnival celebrations

The popular Gabadinho song by Lilongwe based Big Bullets fans took new and strange tunes on Saturday, September 29, 2012 as Mighty Wanderers dumped the ‘people’s team’ out of the K20 million Standard Bank Cup at Silver Stadium.

The song, which goes: Siifee koma Gabadinho, Siife koma Gabadinho, was composed by Bullets fans after their Presidential Cup final triumph over Moyale Barracks at Civo Stadium on  September 1, 2012.

It was again the hit song, when Bullets forced a nil-all draw against Epac FC at Silver Stadium last week to progress to the semi final of the competition- courtesy of their 1-0 first leg win in Balaka that saw marksman Gabadinho Mhango claiming the lone strike.

But came Saturday, the song took strange tunes as jubilant Wanderers fans sang: Gabadinho wothawa sukulu, Gabadinho wothawa sukulu.

Led by flamboyant Yona Malunga, the Wanderers fans also sang: Nyerere zadya Gabadinho, nyerere zadya Gabadinho.

Wanderers eliminated Bullets from the tournament after beating their traditional soccer rivals 5-4 in post-match penalties after a 1-all draw in regulation time.

As Bullets led through a Diverson Mlozi first half strike, their fans also taunted ganyu supporters (mercenaries) by singing: Waganyu wadyetsa aluvera, Waganyu wadyetsa aluvera, meaning the anti-Bullets fans had just donated the 1,000 kwachas (aluvera) entry fees.
